A New Beginning

On November 18, 2016 Central Synagogue of Nassau County and Reconstructionist Congregation Beth Emeth officially consolidated, following approval from The New York State Supreme Court.  This consolidation will facilitate what is intended to be a unique center for Progressive Judaism, under the direction of Rabbi Marc Gruber and Rabbi Elliot Skiddell. Central Synagogue-Beth Emeth (CSBE) will provide innovative religious, spiritual and cultural programming designed for congregants and community alike. CSBE will continue to reach out to and serve participants from across, Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn and beyond.

The video below tells the story of our congregation's journey as part of the Connected Congregations project, aninitiative of 
UJA-Federation with Darim Online.
